Rusty Flight for That's Crafty

Hi Everyone

I have a new favourite product that I am sharing with you on my weekly Tuesday make for That's Crafty Blog and that product is Finnabair rust pastes.

The torso has had a lovely treatment of the finnabair rust pastes over the stencilled grid pattern. To get the stencilling on to the torso I had to stencil the paste onto tissue paper first to allow me to cover such a curvy shape.

you can see the final effect better on the back of my mannequin

butterflies have been stamped and cut out on a prepared background.

The full details and what I used can be found HERE

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:-
Sandee and Amelie- Anything goes steampunk/industrial
Countryview Challenges- Use a stencil

Thanks for stopping by I really appreciate it.
